My journal entries

The reason why I created this little blue book…

June 2018

The WORST day of sadness + struggle today. I don’t like it here. I can’t picture my life here. At what point are you supposed to think enough is enough and it’s not just homesickness and you should go back?

June 2019

Wow, what a difference a year can make… I’m ENGAGED! New house being built. Building my own business. Looking forward to a beautiful summer in Canada with my incredible friends. Feeling settled, happy + light years away from 2018 me ❤️

Sometimes we forget to look back and appreciate our wins… So I made the perfect tool for you to start!
